    help with swinging mail

    this isn't an answer but what do you do for work that you can wear a knee length chainmail shirt?

    Blue scale shirt, medium with white, gold, and copper accent.

    This looks amazing! how long did this take?

    You could get like a JCPenny's, Sear's, Macy's (pretty much any standard clothing store you'd find at a mall) and get a box from there that would have clothing in it, then fold the shirt like a normal piece of clothing and wrap it up that way. you can even use like a soft cloth between the folds to keep it from jingling to much as well as to keep it from rubbing together. It should be pretty entertaining as he expects one thing only to find something way cooler instead.

    Dog Mail Planning a design

    this thread has a link to the inlay IGP and how to use it. That program allows you to convert pictures into chainmail and scalemail patterns to help you layout the design without having to figure it out by hand.

    It looks like a chainmail sweater vest. which is really cool
  8. in the special notes for that kit it says that 16g 1.6mm = 16g 7/32" I would recommend getting rubber rings that size.

    Brass rings or suitable alternative

    I have both of them but the problem is I am already using both in inlay as gold and yellow.
  10. Hey all, on my list of inlay projects in my queue is a inlay of the Hogwarts school crest. I am trying to figure out what to use for the main outline of the crest. I originally purchased machine cut anodized aluminum in "gold" which is fine, but considering that most of the other rings are saw cut and therefore shiny, I don't know how well it will go with the rest of it. I was contemplating getting brass rings, but I don't know if they will tarnish or if they will work out how I want. There isn't an anodized aluminum that is brass colored, so does anyone have any suggestions or input on the current selections? the rings are also 16g 1/4"

    First I was mistaken in aluminum being cheaper as I didn't notice it is about 600 rings per bag as opposed to 300 for aluminum. that being said I agreed that steel was better for combat, but the OP mentioned he wanted to do an inlay in his first post so that is why I asked what he was making this for as aluminum would give more options for colors and be less work to bend.
  12. Alternatively, depending on how much time you want to sync in, you could remove some of the old rings and replace it with the new rings then use the old rings with the new rings to continue so it blends better.

    so I know I'm pretty late to the conversation but what are you making the shirt for? is it for combat (SCA or otherwise) or costuming/decoration (halloween, cosplay, etc)? if it is for combat then steel is definitely the way to go but if it is for decoration then aluminum would probably be the better option as it is cheaper, comes in more colors for your inlay, lighter, and doesn't need to be as strong since it doesn't need to take a hit. Aluminum is also easier to work with than steel. Also while Bright aluminum isn't good for white areas of an inlay, you can still use it as it is just like a light gray in color. I've used it in the past for that purpose.

    Your tapestry was really 400,000 rings? you really are as insane as I thought (meant as a compliment), not mention that you used 7/64 rings).

    I use paint for my inlays personally. my largest to date is 10,620 rings (which is about 90% complete). you can also edit the file from the igp if the rings aren't lining up the way you want. the reason I use paint rather than Gimp or photoshop is because it is less advanced so it won't auto ad gradints or feathering and the like also it is much easier to draw things one pixel at a time (or at least on the pixel level) so you don't have to worry much about scaling after the fact and thus distorting the picture).
